Twitter launched a new and very Facebook-like look for profile pages earlier this month. Initially the design was rolled out to a limited number of users, but today Twitter has announced that it is now available for all users on the Web version.
The design includes a lot of new features — including highlighting popular tweets, pinned tweets, a larger background image, and a more prominent media gallery — but Twitter is letting you try them out before you commit to the change.
If like what you see after your preview the new look, then you can choose to switch it today. Alternatively you can leave your profile as it already is, but Twitter will make you change to the new version at a later date. There’s no word on whether similar changes will come to Twitter’s mobile apps, though it has run some tests.
To recap. Here’s what the old design looks like:
And this is the new one:
